Responsibilities of an Executor
Executor Responsibilities in Pennsylvania
The executor of an estate is the person in charge of the probate process. The executor's main responsibilities are to gather all of the probate assets, to satisfy the financial obligations of the decedent, to pay all appropriate taxes, and to distribute the estate in accordance with the Will.
Typically, an executor will retain an attorney for purposes of assisting them in completion of these responsibilities.
